item store .sas7bitm conversion to EG

Is there a way to convert .sas7bitm files from 32 bit to 64 bit?

We are now using EG and need to be able to use the item store files we already have.

If there is not a way to do that, is there a way to 'view' what's in the current .sas7bitm files?

Thanks.

Re: item store .sas7bitm conversion to EG

Thanks Chris, the 2nd link you provided led me to the STORE statement link. 

 

Basically, I modified the example code below that was provided and was able to get everything I needed:

 

proc plm restore=sasuser.mixed;
   show cov Parms;
   lsmeans A B / diff;
   score data=NewData out=ScoreResults;
run;

 

I appreciate all your help!

Re: item store .sas7bitm conversion to EG

You might be able to use PROC MIGRATE to convert these files - assuming your move was from one OS (like 32-bit Windows) to another (like 64-bit Windows or UNIX). See the doc here:

Re: item store .sas7bitm conversion to EG

Thanks Chris, but from everything we've seen it doesn't look like we can migrate item store files (as the documentation states below), but I was hoping maybe something has changed?!?

 

Ok, if we can't migrate/convert, is there a way to READ or VIEW what's in those files? 

 

Items Stores

PROC MIGRATE supports item stores unless you migrate from a 32-bit to a 64-bit environment. Migrations from 32-bit to 64-bit environments use Remote Library Services (RLS), which does not support item stores. In that case, an error message is not written to the SAS log, but item stores might not work correctly in the target library.

Re: item store .sas7bitm conversion to EG

I think you'll need access to a SAS environment (32-bit Windows, I guess) that can read them, and then use SAS code to reveal the contents so you can transport.  For example, if you're trying to copy ODS templates, you would use PROC TEMPLATE as doc'd here:

For SAS/STAT Linear stores, this topic:

You might want to verify this guidance with SAS Tech Support to see if there are other options.
